|Budget||750 000 €|
The purpose of the project is to strengthen the density of the plot and to fill the “hollow tooth” on the street by the construction of two floors of housing.
• The elevation is clearly identified in relation to the existing building, where we wanted to create a vacuum on the R + 3 to reinforce the gravity of the extension compared to the existing one.
• A double skin made up of more or less dense vertical blades filters the views according to the uses of the rooms and constitutes a solar protection on the south side. We take up the existing rhythm of the front windows by reinterpreting the Parisian skylights coated in the double skin.
• In the North, thanks to a clear horizon, we frame views of the urban environment.
• The roof on the top floor is accessible and allows a real outdoor living space. The specific roof topography can also be felt inside the apartment. The intention is to create a landscape in its own right.
